Reportedly former rajasthan cm Vasundhara Raje, whose meeting with many newly elected MLAs have raised eyebrows, met Nadda in the New delhi on thursday (December 7). narendra Singh Tomar, a seasoned bjp leader from mp whose resignation as union minister was accepted the day before, and baba Balaknath, who is from rajasthan, met Shah on the same day. Both quit the lok sabha after becoming MLAs in their states.
Meanwhile Tomar and union minister Prahlad Singh patel, who comes from politically significant other backward classes (OBCs), are seen as possible cm choices in mp along with the incumbent Shivraj Singh Chouhan. If Raje’s meetings with MLAs have been seen by some observers as her show of strength, Chouhan’s political tours in his home state are being viewed as the OBC leader’s assertion of his political heft amid a view that the bjp is considering new faces as CMs in the three states.
Furthermore patel and Tomar are among 12 bjp MPs elected to three state assemblies and have quit their parliamentary memberships. chhattisgarh bjp president Arun Sao, an OBC leader, union minister Gomati Sai and Lata Usendi, both of whom come from scheduled tribes, are seen as serious contenders for the top seat in the state due to their social background, image and relatively young profile.
